“Soulmates: (Not) Found” is an immersive and interactive experience exploring the implications of Artificial Intelligence on human life and one of its most enigmatic concepts - the soul. 

The story: 

To decrease growing alienation among humans, scientists have developed an algorithm that helps people find their ultimate platonic soulmates. The technology is now being implemented in public spaces in its test-flight mode and is led by artificial intelligence (AI). 

You find yourself on board the first AI-rlines, opting in to participate in the experiment. Along with your fellow passengers, you will be put through a series of social experiments, devised by the digital mind using centuries of scientific study and, occasionally, classical poetry. Will you find your soulmate(s) beside you? It’s up to you and a (questionably) soulless AI pilot. 

In this light-hearted interactive play, you'll be presented with deep philosophical questions, reflect on programming glitches and, in the end, witness the theatre and AI technology come together to send a message to humanity.

AI-powered Play, 2023

Premiered August 3rd, 2023 West Port Oracle, Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

"How was your day?" - is an experimental play, a hybrid of physical theater and art performance tied together with live electronic music.

The same scenes over and over is not something one would expect seeing on stage in a one-hour play, but oddly enough it is a normal thing when it is happening on a larger scale - in our lives. How was your day? gives a philosophical and literal take on the routines of life and the mental traps we fall into on a daily basis. 

Written & Directed by Natalia Yandyganova


Cast: Douglas Bruno, John Paul Harkins, Lauren A. Kennedy, Kyle Silver

Set Design: Veronika Belyaeva

Immersive Experience, 2016

Front. End. Center. is a part of experimental plays series staged in storefronts on various streets of New York City. Interlacing physical theatre and art performance, it introduces a modern satire of political establishments. At the spotlight of the story are the so-called people in charge – four high powered executives.

To keep their chairs occupied they not only have to confront civilians but also survive the intrigues and conspiracies of each other. Keeping the tension between timeless and timely “Front. End. Center” shows strikingly recognizable and absurd scenarios of games for power, which any passerby can become a spectator or even a participant in.
